I was diagnosed in Dec 1994. Age 28. Had surgery immedialty to reduce pressure on pituitary gland. in 1997 had gamma knife radiation. Now in 2010. Lab work shows no signs of the disease. Technically im cured. I have MRI's every two years to check for signs of growth. No change. Tumor still at 2.3 cm. Fortunetly it was caught early before disfiguration occurred. Severe knee dropping headaches and loss of vision prompted tests and it was discovered. Surgery was scary but successfull.
